24 WEEKS WITH BABY GIRL!


It's the last weekend of October! 😭 And I know I've said it over and over again, but where the heck is the time going?! We're trying to soak up as much as this 'Fall Weather' as we can down here while its still 'cool'. We had a few days where the weather was in the mid 70's and all I wanted to do was lounge in the backyard with the dogs taking in all the smells and cooler air! 🍂 Then in true Florida fashion the rain came and made everything wet again!

This week was really good for us, Jimmy was away on business for the majority of it and I kept busy with the house and continued to clear stuff out and organize! We also took my nephew to SeaWorld on Sunday and had an amazing time at their SpookTacular event 👻 (thats another post in itself). Jimmy and I wanted to check out a ranch thats about an hour away with a giant corn maze and hay rides but decided we should probably just wait until next year when our little one is here and the weather isn't as rainy. I already have so many things that I want to do with her and Jimmy this time next year! I can't wait for her year of firsts!


Here's our 24 Week Bumpdate:


How Far Along: 24 Weeks and 6 Days
Total Weight Gain: +4 lbs - She's officially 'popped'. I woke up one morning and had this belly! ↑😳
Maternity Clothes: I recently bought two dresses but they are legit circus tents on me so I'll be returning them. I also bought my baby shower dress this week! SWOON! 😻 Praying it fits how I like! Other than that, still living in scrubs, leggings, tank tops and sports bras.
Sleeping: Still having trouble falling asleep at night, I'm contributing to my mid shift at work and her wild workouts at 3AM. 
Best Moment This Week: Going to a dinner party with babe for his job, & having my mom's amazing neighbor capture these photos for us! ↕ 💜💜💜  
Movement: She moves a lot! Jimmy finally felt her moving and I almost cried - like, WE made her! It's such an amazing feeling!
Food Cravings: No cravings this week, but I've got homemade minestrone soup, potato & corn chowder, and cod and asparagus on the menu for the next few days! Trying to pack in some veggies while enjoying some Fall recipes. We've been on an eating at home kick lately. 
Sickness or Health: I've been feeling really good, I'm just really tired some mornings after I work and my stomach has been feeling SUPER tight at time which isn't pleasant. Unavoidable, but it does NOT feel good!  
Mood: Happy & thankful for the little things, I've had some patients at work this week that have really made me thank my lucky stars for all the small things in our life! 💞 It really could be much, much worse! 
Pregnancy Wisdom: Baby Morgan is the size of a cantaloupe this week, Jimmy laughed when I pointed this out while grocery shopping this morning. 🍈 
Weekly Milestone: I would say having Jimmy feel her moving, like I said its so crazy to think that we made her, and I can't wait to see her when she's born and show us her personality as she grows!  




As I mentioned earlier, we were so lucky that my mom's neighbor snapped these photos of us and captured this moment in my pregnancy. They aren't anything fancy but I am in absolute love with them because we're so genuinely happy and excited about our little girl and I think it shows in the photos! Which was complete opposite of how I was feeling that morning. I was an absolute wreck because this was the morning she officially popped as everyone warned me she would. I had planned on wearing an outfit that would no longer button and I was mad because everything I tried on at the mall fit terrible in my eyes. I've been lucky as told by others that until just now, I haven't even looked pregnant. But honestly adjusting to a new body every day is pretty hard when your so used to seeing your old body the same way for so long! 😓 

So it's safe to say when I saw these photos later that night I felt so stupid for feeling so self-conscious! I didn't care that under my sweater my pants were being held together with two elastic hair ties and that my bra was probably wayyyy to tight! No details barred people, pregnancy is no joke! Thankfully, we haven't had any issues so far, and keeping my fingers crossed for an even smoother finish! 

 I give props to all the moms out there who do this baby after baby and even sometimes back to back. As much as I have enjoyed and even sometimes not enjoyed being pregnant, I don't know if pregnancy is for me, which is completely okay in my eyes. I'm happy and content with our little family to come. Maybe one day I'll eat my words and have another but for now, I'm content. We only have 16 Weeks left, so here's to soaking up every moment that I can with her still inside my belly cooking away! 💕
